Panthers GM Denies He’s Started A Coaching Search


Panthers GM Dave Gettleman is shooting down reports  he has already begun laying the groundwork  for potential coaching candidates, and called the rumor “unequivocally false.”

Sunday morning Ian Rapoport reported that the Panthers had already started the process to replace Ron Rivera as head coach.

Gettleman denied the initial NFL Network report, via David Newton of, who said the G.M. was “adamant” it was not the case.

If he’s to be taken at his word, and there’s no reason to believe he’s lying, the Panthers are simply making a mistake.

Of course Gettleman is lying.  He didn’t hire Rivera, and I’m sure he had a list of coaching candidates when he accepted the job as GM, and probably has always spent some time doing his due diligence for a potential coaching change.

I mean we’re talking about the Panthers here.
